Mismatched source timing is a problem in Cold Rain & Snow, making it sound like a slap-back delay effect has been added. When you're making a matrix, you gotta sync up the recordings; it doesn't seem to be a problem on other tracks here, though.
One of the biggest reasons audience tapes are so popular is because of the digital keyboards and, by this period, the digital effects, making everybody's nervous systems ache. So a post-92 soundboard does benefit a lot from a good matrix treatment to warm it up.
Really sweet show. 1993 is unjustly dismissed by many deadheads, but it was one of the years the band was at its best jam-wise, and Garcia's last really good year.
